Tim Soutar and Neil Costello were elected by member clubs to the England Athletics Board as Non-executive Directors in March 2014. Here is their brief review of activity for the last year and considerations for future work.

It is a long survey, attempting to reduce the number of surveys we produce throughout the year. Therefore, the survey will take up to 25 minutes to complete.
Outgoing Chair of the National Council, Tony Shiret, signs off with his final blog.
Throughout the course of the year, England Athletics will hold consultation meetings around the country. So that we can tailor the consultation sessions, we have developed a series of questions so that we can better understand the views of registered athletes, representatives of member clubs, volunteers and everyone who cares about the future of the sport.
Nominations are invited for a Representative of Clubs Affiliated in England, to be appointed to the UK Members Council, the custodians of the long-term interests of athletics in the UK.
Following the recent nomination/ election process a number of new councillors have now taken up their places on the nine regional councils of England Athletics. These councils are now in the process of electing their regional chairs, who will also take up the region's position on National Council, and can also coopt other members.
Following the launch of England Athletics new strategic plan in late 2016 after a period of consultation with our member clubs, we now approach our next strategy period and we would therefore like to update you on our planning for our future activities.
As the 13th February 2017 deadline for the receipt of nominations for the vacancies on the various regional councils approaches, we thought it may be useful to highlight the points that have been raised with us.
We are looking for nominations for England Athletics' Regional Councils with nominations closing shortly. If you, or someone you know is passionate about our sport and who has the drive and commitment to make a difference, then make sure you get involved in nominations for Regional Councils.
